Bill and I took off to arches yesterday afternoon. Our plan was to try to see some arches off the beaten path. It's quite refreshing to visit an arches in "Arches" national park that isn't over-crowded with people.
Bill's Montereo is a good 4x4 vehicle, so we took a rough track out to find football arch and Eye of the Whale arch. We were unsuccessful in finding football arch, but we did find Eye of the Whale arch:
Then we thought it would be fun to try Delicate arch, but then saw all the people and backed out of that idea. We kept driving until we saw Skyline arch.
This arch is on a fin, so we thought it would be cool to scramble up behind it, little did we know there were park campgrounds not far behind it (so, "people")

Caught the sunset, however SOMETHING is on my lense!
Lastly we drove up to the Windows section to do some light painting. These are crap and I can't wait to see Bill's pictures (I'll post them later). His camera picks up more light and you can keep the shutter opened pretty much the whole time. Plus, Bill was able to light up the arch and it looked DOPE on just his tiny screen on his camera. We did the pictures in front of the North Window.
